We offer readily available venture capital and project financing to domestic and international firms for research and development, real estate acquisitions, expansion, and investments.

We Supply Our Clients with the essential tools they need to pursue lasting capital appreciation.


The original sector of the company, founded in 1957, continues to go strong. In fact, due to rising loan to deposit ratios at many institutions, we are seeing a rise in the number and size of transactions.

Have you seen the ads recently for banks offering cars to people who open certain sized depository accounts? Banks need deposits more than ever to make loans.

If you have clients with a bankable loan and offer the bank a compensating balance deposit to ensure it is funded, this is a great marriage.

Although the majority of the requests we see are from $100,000.00 to $5,000,000.00, we are currently seeing many in the $10,000,000.00 and up arena.

As a side note, we have four MFR deposit transactions that just rolled over for the 12th year in a row. This has provided a great annuity for the agent involved.

The most recent development to dramatically affect our Borrowing Made Easier program was the extension of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, which gives depositors up to $250,000 of FDIC insurance coverage until December 31, 2013.

This change makes it much easier and faster to complete larger transactions.


We offer business consulting, financing, and full-service investment packages to state, government, and private sector companies anywhere on the planet.

If you have a relationship with a bank and they need deposits, do not hesitate to call us. These deposits do not need a transaction associated with them.

Although we can focus primarily on compensating balance deposits in our literature, we do make straight brokered deposits into banks. In fact, almost all banks in this country are now carrying some level of brokered deposits.

What is Stapled Financing?

“Stapled financing” colloquially refers to the commitment letter and term sheet provided by a target company’s financial advisor containing the principal terms of a financing package that is “stapled” to the back of the offering materials prepared by such advisors and distributed to potential bidders.

The financing is generally not required to be utilized by the buyer, and it arises in connection with the sale of both public and private companies, including subsidiaries and divisions.
